Bayani Agbayani has this revelation about the Japan trip with President Duterte
Kapamilya comedian Bayani Agbayani revealed the details about the Japan trip he had with fellow celebrities together with President Rodrigo Duterte.
Bayani is known to be a supporter of the administration and he personally accompanied Senator-elect Bong Go during campaign.
The comedian was also among the invited celebrities in the much-talked-about private dinner with the President at the Malacanang Palace.
A few days after the election, the Duterte went to Japan for his state visit. This official out-of-the-country trip of the Chief Executive received criticisms because several celebrities also went there.
According to Bayani Agbayani, the government paid for his economy plane ticket to Japan because he was there as a performer.
“Mapapanghawakan ko lang ang sarili ko, ha? Hindi ko alam yung sa iba. Akala ko, blowout sa amin, yun pala, magtatrabaho kami. Kaya sabi ko kay Lenlen, matuwa na lang tayo dahil nakita naman, tinitipid talaga nila,” he said during a phone interview with PEP columnist Gorgy Rula.
However, he said that he was the one who bought the ticket for his wife Lenlen.
Bayani admitted that he is aware of the bashing that Dianne Medina received as she was one of the celebrities who also went to Japan.
Dianne, reportedly, answered in a defensive manner when she was confronted about the trip.
“Sabi ko nga sa kanila, dapat sinasagot ninyo nang tama ang bawat tanong. Kung ano yung tanong, yun ang sagot. Kasi, hindi naman puwede na ikaw pa ang magbabayad ng pamasahe mo, ‘tapos ikaw pa ang magpi-perform. Ano ka, tanga? Normal naman yun, e,” the comedian said.
